G'day Steve, be nice to see a step by step guide as you go.

Welcome aboard and remember, we like pics, lots and lots of pics.

LS is a great way to go! I put an LS6 from an '06 Corvette into a '64 Impala and never looked back.  Nice to see another resto-mod project about to start, good luck!

what did you use for exahust manifolds, and fuel pump. id like to put one in the tank but didn't know how much trouble that would be?

Well since mine went into a Chevy, things were a little easier as Eckler's Late Great Chevy sells an installation kit for full size Chevs.  Speedway Motors in Nebraska has two pages in their catalog dedicated to the LS engines where you can find headers (that's where I got mine), fuel pumps, etc. I used and external hi volume electric fuel pump mounted just outside the tank.  There is also a website called ls1tech.com that has a forum very much like this one with dedicated and knowledgeable fans that are very quick to help one another. 

good deal thanks, i guess i assumed all of the X frames were the same but thats probably not the case. i'll look at those sites and see what the offer thanks. what did you do for A/C I'd like to leave as much of the original as possible. as they let the motor freeze i'm going to install a new heater core just as a matter of course. but can the POA valve stay and re-calibrate it? i've seen some info to that effect on chevelles ect

My car was "heat only" so there was no AC system to contend with. I was able to plumb the heater hoses directly to the core as was done in '64. This made it easy when installing the serpentine system too since I was able to omit the AC components. Plus it saved room in the engine compartment. 

LS6 = A Chinese satellite guided munition similar to American JDAM, only with more range, as it is a glide bomb.

LS6

Hahaha, she ran fast enough to go into orbit that's for sure!

Get one of these an you will have fun with your LS6:

They also have some smart fuel delivery systems.

Funny you should mention that system, I am going to put on one a '66 Chevrolet Corvair this summer, just waiting for the weather to break.  That means the month of May here in northern Indiana.

Anders, was your photo in the last issue of the Cadillac/LaSalle Club magazine?  Just wondering, I saw an interesting piece about a Cadillac meet in Europe and low and behold there was an "Anders" in one of the photos.

Sorry, no wasn't me. There are many Anders in Scandinavia. And if you think about it, the very common name Andersson actually means Anders son. My daughter can legally take the name Andersdottir (meaning Anders daughter).

Donald Duck in Danish is Anders And... Glad I'm Swedish.

For a minute there I thought we had a celebrity on our hands. Guess the search for the mystery Anders continues.

64 Recirc/Fresh Air Door Actuator replaced; FROM THE INSIDE.

Posted by Norman Silverman on February 4, 2019 at 11:21pm 8 Comments

I am happy to report that I have successfully replaced the Fresh Air/Recirc door actuator that is located on the blower box-and have done so without having to remove the blower box. I did it by taking out the glove box and attacking it from the back.  It took several days, LOTS of patience and some band-aids, but it is done. THE most difficult part -BY FAR- is to remove and then replace the screw that sits on the actuator arm, connecting it to the fresh…

Where do the flashers go in my 64 Deville Convert.  I'm thinking that's why both turn signals stopped working.

Source for Motor mounts and Trans mounts 1964 SDV

Posted by Norman Silverman on January 9, 2019 at 4:23pm 4 Comments

Hi.

Where is the best place to purchase good quality motor mounts/trans mounts for my 1964 SDV? I see that Rock Auto has them for $8 and change, and others for $24 and change. Big difference. Is there a better place to buy them from?

Thanks

Norm
